So welcome to the world
Got so much I can tell you baby
So many lessons to learn
Let me tell you I’ve heard

Because people can be cruel
And the world is full of rules
That’s when you need to call me
When the struggle gets you down
And there’s no one else around
That’s when you need to call me

Oh you’ll be strong, you hold on
You will get through it
And when you can’t do it
I’ll make you better than that
Don’t be scared, sing your song
Bring your soul to it
And when you’re through with it
I know you’re better than that

I still believe
That this world is a good place baby
For every vulture and thief
Kindness in every stranger

When it’s slipping through your hands
When you do not understand
That’s when you need to call me
When you cannot carry on
When you feel like hope is gone
That’s when you can call me

Oh you’ll be strong, you hold on
You will get through it
And when you can’t do it
I’ll make you better than that
Don’t be scared, sing your song
Bring your soul to it
And when you’re through with it
I know you’re better than that

Welcome to the world
Got so much I can tell you baby
So many lessons to learn
Let me tell you I’ve heard

The road is long, so just hang on
It’s gonna be alright
I’ll make you better than that
The road is long, so keep your faith
When your zero has come
It’s gonna be alright

And you’ll be judged
For who you love
the color of your skin
The road is long
just hang on
It’s gonna be alright

Oh you’ll be strong, you hold on
You will get through it
And when you can’t do it
I’ll make you better than that
Don’t be scared, sing your song
Bring your soul to it
And when you’re through with it
I know you’re better than that

Oh you’ll be strong, you hold on
You will get through it
And when you can’t do it
I’ll make you better than that

Don’t be scared, sing your song
Bring your soul to it
And when you’re through with it
I know you’re better than that

It’s gonna be alright

    General CommentI added this song because I noticed it was missing here and it's a really sweet bside. It talks about holding on despite of having fall down. Once you touched ground, you can only go up again, so you can raise yourself again...
    About the background, I heard that Darren was inspired to write this optimistical song after his best friend become a mother, as a way of telling the child that he shouldn't be scared, because there is a lot of evil things in the world, but the good ones make it worth living in it.
    So it's really inspirational to me and sweet as well, it used to make me smile a lot.

    "When your zero has come, it's gonna be alright..."

    General CommentWow, I didn't know that he wrote that song because of his best friend having a baby. That's really cute and it helps me understand the lyrics more, if only in a more literal manner.
    I just adore this song. One of my favorites by Darren of all time really. I think the lyrics are pretty straightforward, and yes, the hook for me is "and when your zero has come, it's gonna be alright". That gets me everytime.
